  1. Direct Observation of Diatoms Pair Formation in Aqueous Solution Under Laser Scanning Fluorescence Microscopy. D. Das and D. Goswami, in 13th International Conference on Fiber Optics and Photonics (OSA, 2016), p. Tu2B.3 [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: We show important applications of our imaging technique in visualizing the morphology as well as division of diatoms in aqueous solution. The technique involves the efficient detection of the auto-fluorescence from chloroplast and shell structure through laser scanning confocal microscopy.

  2. Probing Intermolecular Interactions in Binary Liquid Mixtures Using Femtosecond Laser-Induced Self-Defocusing. S. K. Maurya, D. Das, and D. Goswami, Applied Spectroscopy 70(10), 1655–1661 (2016) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Photothermal behavior of binary liquid mixtures has been studied using a high repetition rate (HRR) Z-scan technique with femtosecond laser pulses. Changes in the peak–valley difference in transmittance (ΔTP–V) for closed aperture Z-scan experiments are indicative of thermal effects induced by HRR femtosecond laser pulses. We show such indicative results can have a far-reaching impact on molecular properties and intermolecular interactions in binary liquid mixtures. Spectroscopic parameters derived from this experimental technique show that the combined effect of physical and molecular properties of the constituent binary liquids can be related to the components of the binary liquid.

  3. Spatiotemporal Control of Degenerate Multiphoton Fluorescence Microscopy with Delay-Tunable Femtosecond Pulse Pairs. D. Das, I. Bhattacharyya, and D. Goswami, Chemical Physics Letters 657, 72–77 (2016) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Selective excitation of a particular fluorophore in an ensemble of different fluorophores with overlapping fluorescence spectra is shown to be dependent on the time delay of femtosecond pulse pairs in multiphoton fluorescence microscopy. In particular, the two-photon fluorescence behavior of the Texas Red and DAPI dye pair inside Bovine Pulmonary Artery Endothelial (BPAE) cells depends strongly on the center wavelength of the laser, as well as the delay between two identical laser pulses in one-color femtosecond pulse-pair excitation scheme. Thus, we present a novel design concept using pairs of femtosecond pulses at different central wavelengths and tunable pulse separations for controlling the image contrast between two spatially and spectrally overlapping fluorophores. This femtosecond pulse-pair technique is unique in utilizing the variation of dye dynamics inside biological cells as a contrast mode in microscopy of different fluorophores.

  4. Resolution Enhancement through Microscopic Spatiotemporal Control. D. Goswami, D. Das, and S. N. Bandyopadhyay, Faraday Discussions 177(0), 203–212 (2015) [Abstract] [PDF] [BibTeX]

    Abstract: Operating at biologically benign conditions, multi-photon fluorescence imaging microscopy has benefitted immensely from recent developments in microscopic resolution enhancement. Fluorescence microscopy continues to be the best choice for experiments on live specimens, however, multi-photon fluorescence imaging often suffers from overlapping fluorescence of typical dyes used in microscopy, limiting its scope. This limitation has been the focus of our research where we show that by making simple modifications to the laser pulse structure, it is possible to resolve these overlapping fluorescence complications. Specifically, by using pairs of femtosecond pulses with variable delay in place of single pulse excitation, we show controlled fluorescence excitation or suppression of one of the fluorophores over the other through wave-packet interferometry. Such an effect prevails even after the fluorophore coherence timescale, which effectively results in a higher spatial resolution. Here we extend the effect of our pulse-pair technique to microscopic axial resolution experiments and show that such pairs of pulses can also ‘enhance’ axial resolution.
